High Performance Bio-based Functional Coatings for Wood and Decorative Applications (PERFECOAT)

Stopp; Liu; Sieber

The pursuit of a climate-neutral Europe and a truly circular economy requires attention to virtually all fields of production if fossil-based materials are to be eliminated. This relates not only to manufactured goods but also the paints and coatings used to protect them; of the almost 1 million tonnes of paints and coatings produced in Europe each year, more than 80% are derived from fossil resources. Reducing the impact of these coatings would represent a major advance in Europe’s climate ambitions. To address this challenge, the PERFECOAT project will develop and validate a new generation of industrial wood and decorative coatings with significantly more than 25% bio-based components. The project will address three important markets for coatings: high-volume, UVcurable clear coatings, waterborne trim paints for do-it-yourself (DIY), and waterborne wall paints. These coatings will reach, and even surpass, the current quality and sustainability standards.
